    As you've likely heard, paid sick and safe leave is now a reality in Maryland. The Healthy Working Families Act (MHWFA), which as of this writing will become effective February 11, 2018, creates a number of obligations for Maryland employers.  Eric Paltell and Garrett Wozniak, attorneys with Kollman & Saucier, P.A. in Timonium, MD, will provide an overview of the new law, answer your questions, and provide suggestions on how to navigate the law while Maryland employers await guidance from the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation.

    Topics include:
    - Who is and is NOT covered?
    - Why and how sick and safe leave may be used?
    - Sick and safe leave accrual and tracking
    - Notice, record-keeping, and verification under the MHWFA
    - Prohibitions and enforcement
    - Impact on existing paid leave policies
